Activities

Waterslides

We have two slides at the Marion Outdoor Pool, both starting from the top of the 10m platform.

Our green, white and blue “Twist Slide” starts off with a 15m enclosed tunnel with spectacular translucent color bands. The tunnel rounds the corner and changes to an anti-clockwise downward spiral of open air slide for the remainder of the ride. The ride concludes when the rider splashes in to the run-out trough.

Our new, yellow “Speed Slide” is for those looking for a fast and exciting thrill! Drop down 10m at what feels like a vertical plunge, picking up great speed, before crossing the finish line at the bottom in a spectacular splash!

Tips and Tricks

Twist Slide:

  • Pick-up a mat at the bottom of staircase for the Twist slide. It helps maintain speed and reduce friction. Not to be used on speed slide.

  • Getting body weight forward. Leaning forward in seating position. Try and reach your toes. Or sit with feet close in and knees out wide. Lean forward.

  • Do not try and twist and turn around. You will lose momentum.

  • If you find yourself going too fast, sit up and place one hand on the side of the slide. Spread legs wide.

  • Adults riding with children never let go of the child whilst riding the waterslide, as that may cause injury to both of you when you collide at the bottom of the slide.

Speed Slide:

Lay down. Ride on your feet and shoulder blades. Raise your bottom off the slide. Arms crossed onto either shoulder. Legs out straight with feet crossed over. Your feet will take the impact of the still water in the chute at the end.

Inflatable Obstacle Course - 'Crazy Race'

The 'Crazy Race' is an 18 meter long inflatable obstacle course that operates in the deep half of the main pool.

It is quite challenging with several types of obstacles including a tricky zig-zag section, Tarzan rope and slide. It is designed to be very challenging testing out your balance, agility and fitness.

Conditions of Use (Crazy Race)
  • Users need to be at least 120cm tall.

  • Users must pass a 20m swim test, without goggles. They will need to show a confident, recognizable stroke and swim the distance unassisted and without using the bottom or sides of the pool as supports.

  • They will then receive a wrist band allowing them access to the Crazy Race.

  • No tandem adventures on the Crazy Race.
